Jobs and the Economy
We are working to grow an economy that strengthens our county and middle-class families for the long run. We are committed to helping all Americans confront the challenges of the 21st century by spurring job creation, rebuilding our infrastructure, investing in clean-energy technologies and small businesses, and restoring fairness and opportunity to our economy.
It’s time we stop just talking about family values and start pursuing policies that truly value families. We believe that all parents and caregivers—regardless of gender—need more flexibility and support in the workplace. We must protect our most vulnerable children by supporting our foster care system, adoption programs for all caring parents, grandparents, and caregivers, and protecting children from violence and neglect. We recognize that caring for family members and managing a household is real and valuable work.
We recognize senior citizens deserve assistance in preserving their
quality of life and achieving the highest possible level of health and well-being. We work to ensure that seniors have access to information and services to enhance their physical and mental health and increase their access to affordable long-term care.
